VITA program offering free tax prep

The EBCI Cooperative Extension Center and Tsali Manor are hosting the VITA program that provides free tax services. If you make $57,000 or less, you are eligible to have your taxes done at no cost. For married couples filing jointly, the maximum income is also $57,000. This year will see a return to “live return” where taxes are completed in one appointment. Unfortunately, they will not be able to do returns with rental income, investment or dividend income or complex business/self-employment income.

If you or someone you know is interested in having your taxes done for free, please call to make an appointment.
